Don’t let his age fool you, Tom Cruise has been putting himself through a lot of hurt to bring a sense of realism to his films. That means he does his own stunts, even if those stunts risk his life. We’ve seen him scaling the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa building in Dubai in Mission: Impossible: Ghost Protocol.
